 Author’s Notes:
     Here’s a recipe I tried last night (from Laurel’s Kitchen). Since I=
  didn't have some of the ingredients on hand, I substituted carrots for=
  celery and pearled barley for the rice. It turned out ok.
     By the way, Laurel’s Kitchen also has more zucchini recipes (it’s at=
  home, and the above is from memory). If you don't have LK yet, buy it.
 Difficulty    : easy.
 Precision     : measure ingredients.
